The Problem Solving Memory Jogger (2nd Edition)
A problem exists when there is a gap between the current performance level of a process, product, or service, and the desired performance level. Problem solving, as it s covered in this book, is the systematic investigation of a process to identify the root cause of the gap, and taking corrective action to eliminate the gap and keep it from occurring in the future.

Why is this problem-solving model better and different from other models?
Teams have often learned about the tools apart from the context of a problem-solving situation. The 7-Step Model presented in this book provides this context. The presentation of this model provides teams with a step-by-step approach to problem solving, includes sub-steps with recommended tools for doing each of the seven steps, and illustrates a case example that is introduced throughout each step and tool application.
GOAL/QPC can also design custom covers for this Memory Jogger to match your company colors and branding and include a message from your company executives about the importance of this topic to the business.
